Stars for the Holidays – Friday, December 14th

This year, 55 families Glebe families in need were identified and provided with Thanksgiving dinners and turkeys. In order to make their December holidays happier, we have Holiday Stars again. As you may recall, each Star is printed with a child’s age, gender, and gift request. We try to provide every Glebe student and their siblings with gifts and you can help by choosing a Star (or Stars!) and purchasing the gift written on the back of the Star. If you would like to help, Stars are available in Beronica Salas’ office; please drop by and take one. All gifts must be wrapped with the Star securely fastened and returned to Beronica’s office by Friday, December 14th.

Holiday Cookies for Teachers – December 20th 8AM

Calling all bakers!  Let’s show our teachers and staff how much we appreciate them by showering them with holiday cookies.  Please consider baking a batch or two of cookies or other goodies and bringing your treats to the Glebe Elementary School Teachers’ Lounge (second floor) on Wednesday, December 20, between 8 and 9 am.

Our Glebe staff will be able to take home an assortment of goodies in festive containers. We have A LOT of faculty members at Glebe, so we need A LOT of goodies! (We’re hoping for 100 dozen items!)
